Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer

1 Answer

GE WCVH6260 stops unexpectantly

We just installed a GE WCVH6260 washer. It was purchased over a year ago but hadn't been installed until this past weekend. It worked great for the first five loads. Then it would start, do its couple spins, unlock the door, relock the door then stop and do nothing. The door remained locked. I've cleaned out the filter (there was nothing in it since it is only five loads old). I've disconnected the power for about 20 minutes. This got it working again until it tried to drain. Then it stopped and all the LEDs on the front went blank. It would periodically run the pump for about 3 seconds. Water would gush out of the discharge hose then stop when the pump stopped. A red light flashed briefly on the LED panel but otherwise it stayed dark, except for the door locked light. Help!

    After plugging it back in after waiting another 30 minutes all the controls work until you press the start button. Then the time LEDs go blank but the door locked light stays on. Seems like maybe an electrical problem but I'm up for suggestions...

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped.

Check your drain with a good pour of water from a bucket, it must clear fast. It it doesn't snake it out; the prob lies there 99%. And don't push your exit hose too deep into the standpipe, 4 to 5 inches & not air tight.

How old is my washer? When were these made?


You need a serial number to tell for sure.
They probably stopped making those a few years ago.
And the oldest one I've seen it about 10 years old. So probably between 2-10 years old.

I think that you need a new control board if it is electronic if it is analog then it may be faulty wireing or since it is a front loader it may be a door sencer problem there are a number of reasons why you just need to find out which one


Hope it helps
